i have 30 mins to write this post. gotta go pick up linda at the laundry.

our beloved orange cat left us a present on the bed.

a round moist circular present and being the overly fastidious people we are, we left the pee infused blankets in a pile on the floor for, oh, a few days.

daisy even took to napping on them. but one cannot start the new year with cat piddle smelling up the place.

i'm also making a trifle for the new year's eve party. i've never made a trifle. my mother has and i asked her how to make one. she started giving me directions over the phone.

"For the first layer.." she began.

i found a video online. i made some custard but it didn't thicken so i called her. turns out i was using british custard. brits don't like their custards hard.

i told her how i was making it.

"only one layer, huh?" she said.

"just the one layer." we've got cat piddle to clean, mummy.

i'm a little sad the vacation days are coming to an end. time to go back to the yob. the wonderful yob. ack. i've been having dreams, bad, disturbing dreams where i punch people and find myself wandering through china town naked, wearing nothing but a long scarf and holding a purse. a purse -- very disturbing stuff.

but i must go now, because linda's waiting.

happy new year!

happy new year!

this morning I had a dream that I was @ a TT on the las vegas strip. I had my mtn bike with my carbon road tubulars. and couldn't find a floor pump. or my garmin. and I kept running everywhere. and then I woke up with nailprints in my palms.

ack! A purse!

My stress dreams have been entirely too unimaginative. Anything should go in a dream, but instead I dream that Michael is getting distracted and making us late for a plane. Like I need a dream for that to happen?

A purse?!

Mmmm, trifle.

Lilly Bella said...

I am so tired of my yob too. I hate those stress dreams, mine are due next Sun.

6 year olds are such energy vampires...they just suck the life right out of me.

My recurring dream is when they are in my room, tapping my bed...saying "Miss Lilly, Miss Lilly its time to go to school"
